Our Services

Repairs

A survey of a wide area around the leak/damage will be carried out. Photos will be taken to allow us to show you the problem and advise you on the best solution.

Roof installation

As we cover all types of roofing, we will arrange a time to visit you with brochures for you to view, with our recommendations we can find a material/profile and colour you are happy with.

Fascias, Soffits and Guttering

There are many colours and profiles available. We will provide you with brochures so that you can choose the right colour and profile for your property.

Cladding

Replacement cladding is available in many different materials, shapes and colours. We will visit your property to work with you to find the most suitable and cost effective cladding to suit your property.

Pointing

Pointing is generally required due to an existing weak mix or movement, therefore needing to be replaced with new mortar that is applied using a mortar gun and pushed in with an iron. This procedure makes sure the new mix reaches all the areas that may not be visible to the eye.

Lead work

We prefer to use lead as this is the most durable and easy to work with. If you require another material, we will visit your property to view the area to recommend the right material.

Chimney removals

If your chimney needs a new pot, cowling, rendering or re-pointing, we will happily visit you to provide you with a free no-obligation quote.

Jet washing

If your roof needs cleaning due to dirt and growth of moss/algae we can pressure clean all types of roof tiles leaving the tiles clean and looking new.

Cleaning

Once we have cleaned your roof (either by Jet wash or wire brush) a solution will be applied to stop any further growth of moss/algae. Fascias, soffits, guttering and cladding will be cleaned using a UPVC formula, putting the shine back into your property.

Frequently Asked Questions

In the vast majority of situations a leak does not indicate that the entire roof needs replacing - it could simply be down to a broken tile or lose mortar. We will always look to repair a roof if it is possible.
Common signs that a roof needs replacing are:
  • Leaks in multiple places/areas
  • Structural damage
  • General state of dis-repair
Most roofs will last in excess of 20 years, however this is dependent on the quality of both the materials used and the installation/maintenance.
Most days we will be working in areas such as Billericay, Brentwood, Shenfield, Basildon and Chelmsford, however we do also cover the rest of Essex, London and surrounding areas.
Firstly, always seek advice from your local Council planning office. If the new roof is of the same design and uses the the same or similar materials to the existing roof then generally the answer to this question is "No", however this is does not apply to extensions. Our advice is to always contact your local Council planning office before committing to any work.
When we visit your property we will undertake a full survey to assess the right products/materials to use which will be dependent on whether you have a flat or pitched roof, and whether it is currently tiled, slated or sealed with bitumen or rubber. Brochures will also be supplied so that you can choose the right colour and profile.
We will carry out a survey to assess how much mildew/condensation is present and and locate the worst affected areas - the survey will include checks on the exterior to assess whether the mildew/condensation is due to broken tiles. Vent tiles will be fitted in the most affected areas to ensure there is a sufficient flow of air which will prevent future mildew and condensation from forming.
